Selecting a link takes you further into a topic or you can use the search box at the bottom of each page to search the database. The layout allows the user to easily explore and find related information. Users may edit the page at any point to add their own contributions to the site.
The wiki functions as a topic map for the weblog which focuses on "digital art, communication, programming, culture, business and music salad". Along with the timely news entries there’s a good podcasting blogroll and archives with many sound related posts.
All areas of the site are easy to navigate with links and search boxes that integrate into a seamless whole. Here are a couple of features to give you a taste of what’s available.
